Thread Name: Macaronachas / Macaronic Songs. Language mixing
Subject: RE: Macaronachas / Macaronic Songs. Language mixing
As I said in the thread Lyr Add: Multilingual Native-American Medley, when I listen to radio station WOJB, "Woodland Community Radio," in northern Wisconsin, I occasionally hear macaronic songs mixing English with some Native American language(s) which I don't recognize. (The Indians in that area are Chippewa/Anishinabe, but I don't think we can assume that all the music they play is in their language.)
I will pay more attention in the future and try to come back with some names of songs and singers.
